Day 14: Ministers of Reconciliation

Today’s Scripture:

All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.

2 Corinthians 5:18-19

Additional Scriptures:
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Ephesians 4:32
Hebrews 12:14
Colossians 1:21-23

Prayer + Reflection

  1. Ask God to reconcile your relationship, to reveal any hidden sin in your life and to make you pure to approach him with no barriers. Repent for those things God reveals.
  2. Pray for your family, society and world to experience God’s love as you serve as a minister of reconciliation.
  3. Pray: Jesus you mended humanity’s relationship with you through you death. Send me forth today as your ambassador who resists division and contends for unity.

Family Moment

Read 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 and discuss how Christians act out those descriptions of love. If you know someone who contends for unity and love (i.e. teacher, pastor, first responder, coach, friend) make them a card or send a small gift or appreciation to encourage them.
